Movie Filming at Loome Theological Booksellers

Although I wish someone were writing a book at Loome Theological Booksellers (we are booksellers after all, champions of the book!), the reality is that Paul Eckhardt is shooting a film at Loome Theological Booksellers this weekend. Films get plenty of press coverage and I wish books would get more press coverage. Good books need good press coverage. Good books from the annals of Christendom need good press coverage. Good books published by the likes of Benziger Bros, Newman Press, Catholic Truth Society, and Longmans need good press coverage. However, such books are commonplace for us and a movie is not. Therefore, I write to tell you that Paul will be filming a movie this weekend, and I do find that exciting. Read his blog ( for more information. The selection of our bookstore as a filming location is a compliment to Dr. Thomas Loome who bought a vacant bat infested church building more than 25 years ago and transformed it into the beautiful Loome Theological Booksellers it is today: stained glass windows, hardwood floors, towering book cases, emaciated crucifixes, baptismal certificates, statues and all. It's worth a visit.

  1. If you ever get an opportunity to visit this bookstore, you should take it. It really is a beautiful place, both Stillwater and Loome's. I stopped in last year (2008)on my way to the Chesterton Conference. I bought several books by and about Chesterton. I also picked up several by Fr. Richard John Neuhaus. They had an even larger selection by Belloc. I think I browsed for about 3 hours. I could have stayed longer, but I really wanted to get to the Conference.
